The Museum of The Little Prince, Hakone-machi

3.7
Step into scenes from one of the world's most read and best loved children's books at The Museum of The Little Prince, a museum and park dedicated to Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic. Stroll around the small village, designed to look like the illustrations of France pored over endlessly by readers of "The Little Prince." Learn about the author's childhood, and the inspirations which went into the magical tale, as you go through the museum, seeing a recreation of his childhood bedroom and the room in which he wrote the famous story. Rest up in the onsite cafe, serving an array of French dishes with a distinctly Japanese twist. Put The Museum of The Little Prince into our Hakone-machi itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    I went for the first time. But I was listening time is about 2 hours and it stuck in the original notes made, more than an hour I was addicted to making notes. Adults also enjoyed it. Fairy tale world of taste dare too.

    I went for the first time. Staff did not know much about Prince,. So were various exhibits good or was it is. Nicely maintained garden and a ひたれました view of the world.

    A place where the builder tried to reproduce all characters, scenario and things. It is a good place to explore with kids, but I expect more...perhaps the Little Prince is unique to me and none can reproduce...

    Great Museum, a lot of history about the book and how it was created.

    This museum is so fantastic! I love Le Petit Prince so this museum taught me more about the author and I got some great photo opportunities. I definitely suggest going here! I went to Hakone just to see this museum and it was worth the day trip!

    Doesn't look like a shabby museum but unless you understand Japanese, it will be a waste of time

Where to stay in Hakone-machi

A getaway close to the capital, Hakone-machi offers a good range of accommodations, with a particular emphasis on luxury and upmarket hotels. Spa resort-style hotels, often with extensive views of the iconic volcano, sit in the main tourist areas, with their spa facilities using naturally warmed waters from the hot springs around the area. The more densely populated areas to the east house a good number of simple guesthouses and hostels. Staying in Tokyo and taking day trips remains an option for many visitors.
